Girl of the Day - Ann Blyth
Ann Blyth turns 83 today. She had a minor Hollywood career, punctuated by playing the scheming child-star Veda Pierce in the 1945 version of Mildred Pierce starring Joan Crawford, for which Blyth received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. But she was a devout Catholic, was married once and only once (the way it's supposed to work), and had five kids, so I suspect she thought she had a great career as a Mom.
